ISLAMABAD: Dramatic scenes occurred today as PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry ran frantically to evade police arrest soon after his release by Islamabad High Court (IHC) in another previous case.
After getting bail from Islamabad High Court, the former information minister was about to leave with his lawyers when Anti-Terrorism Squad personnel attempted to nab him in another case.
After seeing the law enforcers, Chaudhary, a close aide of Imran Khan, ran out of his vehicle in a desperate attempt to enter the court premises to evade arrest, however, cops chased him while the whole encounter was covered by media.
Earlier in the day, the court ordered officials to release several PTI leaders including Fawad Chaudhry, Shireen Mazari and others, terming their arrest illegal.
The former minister was held last week as he appeared at Supreme Court where he had took refuge to attempt arrest as government started crackdown against PTI leaders over vandalism and clashes at civil military installation in the aftermath of Imran Khan’s arrest.
